Monday, January 09, 2006Where did those two weeks go?
Today is the beginning of the new semester, and I'm at my desk wondering where the last two/three weeks went. It seems that a lot of time was spent getting somewhere, and too little time spent enjoying the destination. I guess this is true for many families where parents divorce and everyone lives far enough apart to make visiting necessary but time consuming. Getting a five day cold/flu doesn't help either.
Luckily, I had time to attend the SPSA meetings last week--see a few panels and meet a few folks. I didn't see Munger or meet Steven Taylor, but as Chris pointed out, we had a nice breakfast at IHOP. (Who said I don't know the bumpin' Atlanta spots?) If I get minor demerits for being a Tar Heel, do I get bonus points for being a Longhorn? I bleed more burnt orange than baby blue, even during basketball season.
Now, I must scramble to finish syllabi, grant forms, and turn in my third-year review package. When I come up for air, I'll post about more substantive issues.

It occurred to me as I was leaving that I should have looked for you. However, I sort did a whirlwind tour this time, so wasn't there much.
If you go to New Orleans next year, we will to make sure to meet.

I was too harried with getting back to ATL to coordinate much. Hopefully, we'll be more organized next time.
